gross but not BAD
Yeah, "Faces of Death". "Dead Kennedy". Head wound. So? It happened.
Gary Shaw explains how it happened and more importantly how it DIDN'T HAPPEN.
Gary Shaw goes farther than some "physics-conspiracy buffs", because he discusses the political atmosphere surrounding John F. Kennedy, the different blocs of 'enemies' who hated Kennedy or who Kennedy ticked off by doing something SANE.
I don't remember if Shaw covers all this:
JFK had military enemies on the far right who wanted to invade Cuba and nuke the USSR. JFK made enemies in Big Oil in Texas by trimming their special tax breaks ... what a commie! JFK fired some CIA over Bay of Pigs. JFK beat Nixon, Allen Dulles' fave water boy. JFK sent in Fed Marshalls to enroll a black man in U-Miss, then Fed Troops to quell riots. JFK apparently was aiming at ending the Vietnam War, but not until after re-election. JFK was Catholic, and he liked European suits. Jackie liked the French.
Another video not on Archive.org is called "Revision of Evidence". Lots and lots of live news footage from that day and days after. You can visually _SEE_ newscasters and politicians and detectives telling bald-faced lies and changing their stories. Walter Kronkite looks very uncomfortable being forced to say the FBI's original statement about the type of murder weapon (which had been broadcast repeatedly for one full news day) was incorrect, and now FBI says it was a different weapon ... as if the FBI couldn't figure out what weapons they were holding.
There is no "narrator" voice. Instead there is testimony from a Dallas cop-witness who was later killed. The first 20 minutes are very slow, before it gets going.
